Media Center



Safety Protocols

Masks are required to enter the media center. Please check in the front office if you are a [email protected] student. To reduce the risk of exposure for all, we are asking for students to come in alone and for family members to wait in the front office lobby or outside. 


All books handled by students will be quarantined for 7 days.  Additionally, socially distant seating, gloves and hand sanitizer are available in the library. 


All students are able to place books on hold, in Destiny, and will be notified for pickup. Look for more information about placing holds on the Student Body Canvas course’s Media Center page.

Destiny

If there was a magic potion that you could take to make you smarter, give you a better vocabulary, improve your concentration, focus, memory, self-esteem, and creativity, would you take it? Surprisingly, there is such a way to achieve all of these things and it is available to everybody. It is called reading!  Please consider reading the Florida Teens Read books, so you can participate in our incentive program. Choose books that you will enjoy so that you can find that love of reading that we all talk about.

Stop by the library to give us suggestions for books to buy for you and other students. We want to purchase books that YOU want to read!
